The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as, "partnering with clients in a thought provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential."
Life coaches work with clients to name their goals and identify obstacles and challenges that keep them from making progress. Coaches provide strategies that align with a clients' strengths, unique skill set and personality so that any steps the clients takes will lead to lasting change.
Self-Discovery is a process where a client engages in a series of questions, assessments and activities that help the client learn more about themselves, who they are and what they want in all areas of their life.
Clients will create a list of ideal components of their life or career and a list of possibilities to pursue.
Clients are also given the opportunity to learn more about themselves through Myers Biggs and Enneagram personality platforms.
Those who might benefit from self-discovery include clients:
ready for a career or life change
yearning to better know themselves
wondering what the next step will be
looking to build confidence to take the next step
wanting to feel more integrated with themselves and their values
We all face times in or lives when we need help to reach our goals, make change, or discover our gifts and talents. Our lives are always changing and growing so there are countless reasons and opportunities to engage with a life coach.
